Marche Hall (also known as Marsh Hall, Marshe Manor)5842

Westbury, England, Shropshire

Brief Description

Marshe Hall is a manor house of around 1604, occupying an earlier medieval moated site. In the 19th century, there were grounds defined to the north-east, north-west and south-west by roads or tracks. It is possible that the grounds, particularly to the north-west, west and south-west of the hall, were planted with trees.

History

Marshe Hall is dated to 1604, but the first evidence for a park around the house is in 1827. By the late 19th century, the grounds had

been extended to the north-west. This possibly occurred at the same time as the diverting of a tributary of the Rea Brook, which had previously formed the northern boundary of the park.
